    Well at least the PC one is. 360 should be in the marketplace soon.

    http://www.worthdownloading.com/down...d=1368&id=7864

    Some mirrors to filefront which have had the best download rates and no lines. Getting a steady 650KB on mirror 2.

    Fileshack and Gamespot were a joke, unless you are a payed subscriber.

    Anyway, only 450MB so get it while it's hot!

    I'll download the demo tonight. Prey has been in development for about forever. I'm suprised it was released.

    Still waiting on Duke Nukem Forever, which has been in development for about the same amount of time.

    Played through it last night. It was pretty good. Even liked the music in the jukebox. [​IMG]

    The is a lot of deju vu in what is happening, but the world feels very alien and so far I like the weapons you get. I will say that this is the only FPS I've ever played where I got a little motion sick. All that gravity and walking on walls and spinning. Makes for some interesting battles, but got me sick too. :S

    I'll probably pick it up.

    Indeed, I downloaded it last weekend and had fun playing the demo. The whole portal and gravity thing is a nice twist to a genre that seems so repetitive nowadays.

    Well, just played and beat the game in 7 hours and I thought I was taking my time. Definitely too short for $50 and laughably short for $60 on the X360. There were some cool sections, and a few interesting puzzles, but mostly it was incredibly easy. Biggest problem is that you just can't die, or better put, there is no penalty for dieing. The variety of enemies is small, the AI sucks, the puzzles aren't challenging.

    It is pretty to look at, and there were a few times where I went, wow that was cool. But overall, wait for the bargain bin.

    Thanks for the warning, Jason. I was on the fence, but I think that after your post and the reviews, I think I'll look for a rental or wait until I can find it cheap/used. I had heard it was a short game, although the demo was a lot of fun.

    Oh, well. I'm still obsessed with Oblivion anyways, ever since I got it last month. Now there's a game worth 60 bucks.
